At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Rockfax Description
The front face of the Leaf trending left via a flake and tiny groove. Poorly protected, so it needs a steady head. © Rockfax

βeta: The wire would hold and the only tricky move is right next to it.

βeta: My mates had more problems seconding this than Great Buttress Arete ! As to leading - one wire behind a dodgy flake at less than half height doesn't give you much confidence, but the moves are pleasant enough.

GermanAlex 2 Mar, 2019 Lead O/S Relatively easy but not heaps of gear, if you fluff the start you'll find out just how soft those Wharncliffe boulders are. Two solid (small) cams at the top though, VS with these.
